Not On The Cards Kindle Edition
M: I enjoyed the book. It read like a short story --fast paced, focused on plot. I got caught up in Chiri's desires. ... I liked the way it was a growing mystery enfolded in a sci-fi thriller.
L: It held my interest,a page-turner! The sense of place - Camberwell, the markets the junction. It's real and grounded. I can visualise it. The pace of the scenes ... is great, edgy; I felt all the emotions Chiri was going through. I loved it, Cage.
C: Fast paced from the start; I was completely enthralled with her fears and journey. I would recommend this to the person who wants something interesting and different. Not witches, not warlocks, but enough arcane mixed with soft sci-fi, and in places we can see,smell, and hear. Loved it.
- A story of needs versus love, of deeds versus promises, of commitment and release.

In Not on the Cards, that market atmosphere becomes something else, something more like a Carnival and Freak Show combined. It's the perfect setting for Chiri, a Reader of Cards who also happens to be the Gate Keeper of the Icosa, a construct spanning multiple universes within the multiverse.
Chiri should not be in Camberwell Junction. She should not be living Saturday, over and over again. She should not be lost, unable to find her way back to the place and time where her daughter may or may not be alive.
And then the Thief arrives with a Key that isn't really a key, but it's the closest thing to a Key Chiri has felt in a lifetime of waiting. Trouble is, following this Key that isn't a Key could lead to the destruction of the Icosa, the construct she has sworn to protect.
Do not expect this story to be a comfortable read that you can skim while waiting for the train or standing in a queue. Not on the Cards will challenge you, but oh how lovely it is when you 'get it'.
The last time my brain received such a workout was when I read Firefall by Peter Watts. Very different stories and storytellers, but the same result - a reward commensurate with the challenge.
Why climb Everest? Because it's there.
